Traditional Irish Music
Cúig are Miceál Mullen(Banjo/Mandolin), Rónán Stewart (Fiddle/ Uilleann pipes), Ruairí Stewart (Guitar), Eoin Murphy (Accordion) and Cathal Murphy (Bodhrán/Drums). They have just started a Kickstarter campaign for their new album, and you can support it by following the link below. Guitarist Ruairí Stewart states that their music has deep roots “within the boundaries of Irish traditional music” adding that “we’re not afraid to take inspiration from Breton, Galician and American Bluegrass styles. With regard to individuals that have inspired them he says that “there is no real central figure but rather a multitude of them ranging from the likes of Dermot Byrne, Cillian Vallely, Jim Goodwin, Cathal Hayden” and many more both locally as well as internationally. We have featured their music already on Tradconnect and you can read a short interview with the band here.
